Did anyone try this DDhifi cable?
Looks well done.

I use the « silver » version as my daily driver. Beautifully made with the only caveat of being a little stiff compared to others I had but nothing bad as it flexes and bends without retaining shape. Compared to the 2 pure silver cables I was using before, it tamed the silver typical dynamism and excitement a little but gave a bit of boost to subbass and to my big suprise, soundstage expansion, quite drastic. I haven’t bathed in kilobuck cables yet so all is relative I guess.

Here is what mine looks like: https://hifigo.com/products/dd-ddhifi-bc130a-air-nyx-silver-earphone-upgrade-cable

I gotta say 1973 is giving 1969 a run for its money.

many so called music experts
Who exactly are these "experts"? I am the only expert that matters for my own listening, and I'm quite happy to listen to anything from any decade, as long as it gives me that dopamine hit.
I think this is objectively probably true.
How can there be anything objective about it? Not having a go or anything, but which year or decade is 'the best' has to be the most subjective thing of this hobby.
1969 would get my vote for single best year.
Number 2 on my list...

Fair enough, I misspoke.

Had to do a double take. Thought it was the Jewel for a second.
Nope, jewel is way way way beyond my pricing comfort zone or what is worth it for me in this hobby. That would be the szalayi.

I think 1994 is probably my favourite decade of the 1990s and would be top 3 for me along with 1969 and 1973.

For the 1980s...

Crowded House
Peace Sells
Master of Puppets
Reign in Blood
So
The Colour of Spring
Control
Invisible Touch

1986 is my favorite.

Off of The Queen Is Dead.

There is a Light that Never Goes Out.

Was a track I listened to so so many times,
this is the If A Double Decker Buss Crashes Into Us, song. Kind of dark but happy at the same time.
This track is as good as pop music gets for me.

The Queen is Dead in my top albums ever, love every track. I was a big fan of The Smiths from the late 80s, likewise The Cure - still am of both, and finally seeing The Cure playing Dublin in December... can't wait.

Oh and double decker bus, brilliant.
